    @freerocker101 from that error i’d say make sure you have Microsoft visual c++ 2008 installed on your pc

    @iNexXxuS i’ma also having major lag even tho i meet the requirements, but like most people say, some games run better then others.

    i’m running harvest moon, tree of tranquility at about 10FPS >.o

    also, sorry to be taking up time but do you recommend any games?

    @kilerkane dolphin 2.0?
    guess that must be the new stable release the dev team put out. Not familiar with the so called stable release but in the new revisions in the wii remote configuration there is a drop down menu to choose from inactive, real or emulated wii remote. To use the keyboard and mouse choose emulated wii remote.

    i keep getting an error saying “wiimote not connected” i can’t seem to find the option that disable the wiimote and instead use the mouse or key bored

    i’m running dolphin 2.0
